Doing Renovations Right with Green Options
Green is an option for any renovation project. From sporting complexes and schools, to government agencies and airports, there is always a “green” renovation choice.
Sport surfaces are getting in the green game. As proud participants of ClimateSmart and the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), Dinoflex® is “LEED”ing the recycled rubber flooring industry into a new era of sustainability. Like Dinomat made from 100% recycled tire rubber, up to 90% of Dinoflex® products consist of recycled, post-consumer tire rubber. With a large quantity of rubber manufactured from tires, Dinoflex takes what otherwise would have been wasted and creates a necessity. Similarly, the interlocking tiles of Sport Mat have the ability to be removable, reversible and reusable. The interlocking process creates a seamless flooring appearance while allowing a single floor piece to be interchanged rather than scrapping an entire location: preserving resources and saving time.
As North America’s largest consumer of recycled scrap-tire rubber, ECORE™ reuses more than 75 million pounds of material each year. Combined with ECORE™’s green conscious Reduex® program to recycle used products, ECORE™ is giving long lasting flooring a new meaning. ECORE is even taking a larger step in the right direction. Their Everlast UltraTile® adhesive-free flooring is manufactured from 100% recycled tire rubber. Everlast UltraTile offers a new brand of visual excitement to any fitness facility or club interior. The modular 2′ x 2′ x 1″ tiles can be placed over your existing floor, saving time and money. UltraTile can also withstand the constant dropping of weights and pounding of equipment without showing wear and tear.
Keeping the green going, EnviroFlex™ is FLEXCO®’s ecological line that denotes environmentally friendly products using post-industrial and pre-consumer waste, recycled substances and sustainable material into their flooring to help contribute LEED® credits to your renovation projects. Over 95% of FLEXCO®’s product line fits into this category. Various choices such as Wallflower Wall Base®, Prime Sports Flooring®, Contract Solid Vinyl Tile® and more are Collaborative for High Performance Schools (CHPS) certified which works to keep educational spaces energy efficient, acoustically sound and environmentally safe. With recycled rubber square or interlocking tiles constructed with 71% post-consumer recycled content, several FloorScore® certified flooring products and helpful GreenWizard and ecoScorecard tools, it is a click away to finding a “greener” flooring.
